I have a Lightweight North Face Vector 22 tent I inherited. The tent looks brand new, not a spec of dirt;however, the rain fly is tacky or gummy on the underneath side. I assume this is Silnylon or some sort of silicone treated material. My question is- Can-Should-How do I get rid of the tackiness? The tent bag made from the same material is somewhat the same way, I put a bit of baby powder inside the bag and that seemed to work, but I am a bit reluctant to do it to the rainfly.
Thanks for any ideas or suggestions.
